What makes a good paint for miniatures?
The Army Painter have developed, what we believe is the best product for the job; a creamy and highly pigmented paint. This ensures optimal coverage whether basecoating or highlighting, but also retains fantastic blending capabilities and thinning options for very experienced painters. The Starter Paint Set and Mega Paint Set are both perfect kick-off points, if you’re new to the hobby or looking to jump-start your old collection. Here you will find the right starter colour palette – for your future endeavours into the art of painting miniatures.

High-quality formula
Warpaints are high-quality acrylic paints with excellent consistency and opacity. Some colours like blue hues will have a better opacity than for example yellow hues, because pigments behave differently from colour to colour. Army Painter are constantly working to ensure that their products meet the high standards demanded by painters all over the World, and the consistency and continuous quality are something they are serious about preserving.

Warpaints Lid System
Army Painter's different Warpaints are organized into an easy system of coloured lids, that represent which type of product it is. Standard Warpaints carry the signature White lid, along with the Effect Warpaints, that are utilitarian paint products that help you achieve neat effects like Disgusting Slime, Glistening Blood or pure Warpaints Medium to help control the opacity you require for your painting project. Red lids signify the line of Quickshade Washes, which create spectacular depth and shading for your miniatures. The Black lids cover a range of Metallic Warpaints, with a vibrantly shimmering metal shine. Silver lids give you the Speedpaint one-coat painting solution range which take the ease of use of Quickshades and combine them with the high-quality pigments of Warpaints. Finally, but not at all the least are the Gold-lidded bottles of Warpaints Air, specially formulated for use in your airbrush and with a unique Colour Triad System.
